A Case Study of How Mobile Robot Competitions Promote Future Research Academic Article uri icon


  • The purpose of mobile robot competitions is to push the field of research and inspire future work. Our involvement in the Urban Search and Rescue event of the 2000 AAAI Mobile Robot Competition allowed us the opportunity to test our Urban Search and Rescue robot team in a standardized testbed. The result was ideas for future enhancements and research work. This article presents our experience as a case study on how mobile robot competitions promote research. © 2002 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
